Public WMS-Service

Public Web Map Service is a service that is offered by the Land Board for displaying spatially referenced data on the computer screen and is based on OGC WMS (Open Geospatial Consortium Web Map Service) standard. The service is for public use, free of charge and includes most of the spatial data the Land Board collects. Please refer to the Land Board when using extracted data, printouts, etc. While using the map image received from the service in different map applications, and provided the reference "Land Board” that is integrated into the service is not clearly visible, a reference shall be made to the Land Board as the data origin (e.g. "Base map: Land Board”). In final products and printouts a more detailed reference shall be used, e.g. "name of the base map, Land Board, date of extract”.

A map produced by WMS-service is in raster format and can be used by GIS software (for example ArcGIS, MapInfo, MicroStation, AutoCAD MAP 3D or freeware which includes WMS-client capability, some popular examples are QGIS, uDig, Gaia, Google Earth).

The following WMS services are available:
